to congress. rick from michigan, republican. caller: your guests represent two different points of view. i do not want one guy to speak to me at all. the one problem in the government is the federal reserve. we have been under the thumb of the reserve from 1913. these people are running the economy. obama cannot do anything. the congress has given up their constitutional responsibility. we need to redo this whole thing. the system is broke. we pay a gasoline tax. that is supposed to pay all the road costs. we're paying too much tax as it is. we need to eliminate the federal income tax. the others need to be looked at. we have to look at the monetary system. if you print another $447 billion -- we are broke. host: does get reaction. what did you think about his comments? -- let's get reaction. guest: he doesn't want me to talk because i do not agree with this point of view. one of the big problems of the federal reserve is that it is not doing as much as it could be doing to fight the recession. you have ben bernanke doing a lot of pretty aggressive moves. he has not done big quantitative easi
and the administration abruptly fired the coach. five days ahead of the game with michigan, one of the greatest rivalries in the country, they fire their coach. they're infuriated by this decision. the expression of public anger took the form of one of those college sports moments that makes our executive, bill wolf cry at meetings when he tries to explain them. hours after coach earl bruce was fired, 150 members of the ohio state marching band marched to earl bruce's house and serenaded their old devastated coach with ohio state fight songs. ♪ the whole state of michigan ♪ we're from ohio >> coach earl bruce was not a man who wants to reveal his emotions.open with the band on his lawn. five days later ohio state traveled to michigan and somehow beat their arch rivals and the buckeye players carried coach earl bruce off the field on their shoulders. serenading leads to weeping, leads to upset victory and redemption. earl bruce's week in november 1987 was the standard in which tearful marching band stories must, must be judged. the best thing in the world is right up there with it. it's maybe even as
to detroit, michigan. he'll address the congress about job creation and travelling to richmond to discuss the program. this comes on the heals of last weeks disappointing jobs report. wir told no net jobs were created. >> president barak obama is spending the weekend at camp david working on his speech. >> it doesn't help when those folks turn around and risk losing hundreds of thousands of jobs. >> unemployment is left lodged at 9.1%. >> the president will come forward with specific proposals that by a measure would add to growth and job creation in the short term. >> the plan is based on tax relief, including tax credits for company who's hire new workers. tarring estimated assistance for long term unemployed. those out of a job six months or longer. >> it won't make the percentage higher. >> they want to try to help company that's create jobs. >> you have a lot of people going for the same job. they probably need about two people to fill in a job. >> it's been difficult. >> so many will be listening to the president on thursday. >> looking at the day ahead, the corruption trial against
will support this democratic president or will we see in places like michigan what we saw in the reagan days, blue collar reagan democrats helping the republicans? >> i think it's going to be different this time because of the attack on the -- on labor by the tea party. we had 100,000 people at a rally in madison, wisconsin. we had 50,000 people in ohio. we collected a million signatures in ohio. people realize what's going on, that they might have voted republican a small group of organized labor. but i think people are aware now that this group is coming after them. when they start talking about, you know, getting rid of social security, medicare, medicaid, rolling back collective bargaining in major states, i think this is -- this has been the wake-up call an maybe labor needs. and some of those people that voted republican are now going to say, what a mistake i made because i didn't know they were going to take my job away, i didn't know they were going to take clollective bargaining awa. you saw what they did and what they believe in. and you heard this debate in washington with regard
, thank you for calling. caller: i am concerned here in michigan with the layoffs, the $300 million deficit, and they appointed two emergency financial managers. there seems to be waste and fraud and abuse in accountability. i would like to see how no child left the chat -- no child left behind enforced in court and not left to the states. host: so your state is not up to the challenge? caller: that is correct. host: can you give us more specifics? caller: we have a lot of administrators, a superintendent, with the governor that has recently left office, she had controlled for years. they took out almost $1 billion but still we maintained a deficit. the should have file for bankruptcy protection and we would not be in this situation. it does not make sense for kids to go to school and not have supplies and toilet paper. it was a bunch of nonsense. host: the ranking member of the education committee had this to say about obama's decision when it came to the waivers. president obama's efforts represent a dramatic shift -- again, waivers being offered to states to come up with their ow
, delaware, illinois, indiana, kentucky, kentucky, kentucky, ohio, ohio, ohio, michigan, missouri and tennessee. some have suggested that this program has been slow to spend emergency funding provided in the f.y. 2000 c.r. the loan process ought to be strenuous. one company originally applied in 2006 and received an a.t.v. loan in 2010 and required four years of due diligence and reviewed to qualify for the loan. republicans seem to be shoing an ultimate umh. expedite the review process. by the way, the company in question employed 400 employees before receiving the loan. today they have 1,400 employees in the field of engineering research and development, design, manufacturing, assembly, maintenance and service, sales and support. the program has an additional 18 loan applications in progress that are projected to create 50,000 to 60,000 more jobs in california, florida, illinois, indiana, louisiana, michigan, missouri and ohio. one pending application would support investments at 11 plants in illinois, indiana, michigan and ohio. the company employs over 56,000 workers having ad
hope he goes to michigan. i hope he comes back to ohio. he was in ohio yesterday, and he said this about the jobs bill. >> ohio, if you pass this bill, then right here in this state tens of thousands of construction workers will have a job again. pass this jobs bill, and there will be funding to save the jobs of up to 14,000 ohio teachers and cops and firefighters. there are schools all throughout ohio that need this kind of renovation. there's a bridge in cincinnati that connects ohio to kentucky that needs this kind of renovation. there are construction projects like these all across the country just waiting to get started and there are millions of unemployed construction workers looking for a job. so my question to congress is, what on earth are we waiting for? >> and of course a gallup poll out today showing 45% of americans want their congressional member to vote for the american jobs act. only 32% want them to vote against it. so, once again, the people aren't being listened to by the republicans. now, in the state of ohio, boots on the ground here, it it's a radical age
there. host: grand rapids, michigan. steve, good morning good morning. caller: good morning. i heard your earlier comment about comment about -- i heard your earlier comment about the budget being very small. host: that's what advocates say. in comparison, about $5 billion. it is smaller compared to government's overall budget, as well as corporations. caller: i think you are very naive in the fact that when we want the u.n. to vote our way, we literally drive all these other countries, -- we bribe all these other countries, and we spend millions more than that to get the boat to go our way. when we do get a vote in the u.n., the united states carries the major weight. we use all our supplies, all our troops. you are wrong with the money. host: where did you find this data? where did you find the stated that the u.n. uses money to bribe. the united states, excuse me. caller: there are so many backdoor deals. if you vote our way, we will build you this dam, or we will do this or that. that goes on all the time. host: where have you read that? caller: where have i read that? that's jus
been very useful to democrats in michigan. in the auto industry. so, initially, you have this sort of sense of acquiescence by democrats that, all right, we don't normally offset emergency funding, but to get this through and to avoid another big fight, we're going to do it. but then democrats seemed to sense an opening. there was a newly combative attitude coming out of the white house thaw referred to earlier, and they decided to hold the line on their troops, and they voted against the c.r. in the house, sending the original, in the original vote it we want down to defeat. republicans rallied. they made cosmetic changed to get their people on board. and then the senate, which had been expected to sort of swallow whatever came over from the house, decide that had they would get their back up and that they would block, which they did. so now we're supposed to have a vote on the democrat i go version, which provides extra money in disaster relief without cutting the loan program or the other things that republicans threw in, but that's expected to fail as well. so over the weekend,
away their money. host: let's go to griffin, independent in michigan. caller: i keep hearing about the secretary of warren buffett. i do taxes. i figure if the secretary has a standard deduction, she would have to have an income of 90,000 a year. that would equal his 17.4%. using the word secretary, which is 50,000 on average at best in michigan and using that as an example is very disingenuous. i would like to hear it stop. host: we have a comment on twitter. echoing a the sentiments of a caller a moment ago. caller: i think it is unfair as far as the taxes that the rich pay, which is really nothing. i do not know if anyone has ever watched, because my grandkids watched the sweet 16 parties. it is nothing for them to spend $100,000 for their kids parties and then on top of that really expensive cars. the rich do not fight wars. their children do not go to fight wars. they should pay extra, because we are making them safe and allowing them to have their free will and the expense of the lives. and they can appear -- paid $20,000 for a pair of shoes. it is unfair. that could be a sal
the stadium twice because of heavy rain and lightning. and university of michigan's game against western michigan was stopped late in the third quarter because of lightning. and it never resumed. michigan, by the way, keeping score, won that game. >>> finally, it seems that movie stars are never out of the spotlight. but just ask crystal the monkey. the primate star of "night at the museum," and "the hangover part 2," was spotted on a flight from l.a. to newark yesterday. the 17-year-old female monkey smiled for her fans and posed for pictures. how about that? i did a little research. and i could not find an faa regulation that says you cannot let a monkey buy a ticket and fly on a plane. >> ron asked his producer, why is this monkey sitting in first class? >> as far as we know, she was in coach. you know? a beer. >> low-key. incognito. >>> let's check the weather. we're going back to scott padgett, from our miami station, local 10, wplg, also known as tropical storm lee. >> thanks so much there -- is it david? >> i knew that was coming. >> let's take a look at what's going on. a cold fr
